Everything was fine and suddenly last night both the fridge and freezer started warming. Freezer is now at 45 and the fridge is at 55.


It could be as stated originally that it may be the thermostat. That was my problem. I had a Sears 18 cu top freezer. The thermostat was located behind the metal panel in the freezer. Take the panel off and it should be a round little metal cup that has 2 wires going to it. It was a cheap part, under $10. Just cut the wires, splice in and good to go. There are some pretty good videos on you tube for trouble shooting.

Whirlpool American fridge freezer FRSB36AF20/2 Triangle Warning light on and freezer not freezing. Fridge ok


Most common these symptoms point to a unit low on freon. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer. So there is just enough freon for a good fridge temp but not to freeze water in the freezer.
Second would be the coils froze over due to the defrost circuit not working. Also check the conderser fan in the freezer. The cooling fan in the back bottom, if there is one, may have quit also.

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok


Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

Amana arb2557cw condenser coils freezing, fridge not cooling


There are a few things that it could be. Do you mean the evaparator coil? This would be the coil on the inside of the freezer, the condenser is outside the unit. If the evap. coil is freezing, you could have to much in your freezer blocking air flow. You could also have a evap. fan not running. Check the owner's manual for the location of the defrost timer, it could be bad. The thermostat needs to be checked and set so that it is at a reasonable level. One last thing to check would be the condensate drain. Make sure the drain is not plugged or the line is not plugged. Good luck.

Freezer on the bottom model # PBF2555HEW Freezer works refrigerator not cooling at all


We let the fridge thaw for two days, cleaned it from top to bottom especially the coils and underneath. We moved it outside and used an air compressor to blow out the dust and dirt around the coils so nothing was damaged in the process. It works like a charm and probably more efficiently too. Before it had quit working it was freezing in the refrigerator part. So that was an indicator something was clogged. Moisture that collects and freezes blocks the air from circulating. The freezer worked great! But ice cream was too hard.  Now it's just right.
